A Hint at the Phillies Desert Dogs Roster

Last year the team player assignments to their respective Arizona Fall League clubs weren’t announced until the end of August, so chances are we’ll have to wait another week or two before learning who goes where.  All we know so far is the tentative schedule.  Budgeting more time this year to R&R at Fall League games, I’m getting antsy to find out the rosters.  Last year we had considerable enjoyment watching the Scottsdale Scorpions, not so much for Phillies talent which was weak, but for the skills of Greg Bird and Aaron Judge – two stud Yankee prospects.  I would have bet that Judge would make it to Yankee stadium ahead of Bird, but there was “Birdie” last night in the middle of a walk-off victory for the pinstripes.

I read this morning to learn that Jorge Alfaro, the prized 22 year-old catching prospect the Phillies received in the Hamels trade, is rehabbing in Clearwater and readying to play in the fall instructional league.  I’m thinking that’s the Florida fall instructional league, which means that Andrew Knapp, the Fightin’ Phils switch-hitting catcher who is on an unbelievable hot streak with the bat – his mustache serving as a good-luck charm – may be one of the Phils’ assignments to the Glendale Desert Dogs, this year’s Phillies AFL team.
